Gina's story begins in Garland, TX. She is also the youngest of five children. Gina grew up in a godly home and learned much from her family's journey with God. When Gina was ten years old, she came into relationship with Christ. Later, while attending camp in Glorieta, NM, God called her to be a minister's wife.
As Grant's wife, life has never been dull. God has led the couple down many paths. Through over 20 years of marriage, God has taught Gina much about faith and having a dependency upon Him for everything.
As Mom of five kids, life is never dull on the home front. Through many many adventures, struggles, and rewards, God continues to model her and shape into the woman He desires.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV)
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Grant's story begins in Augusta, Georgia. He is the youngest of five preacher kids. Growing up, Grant had little interest in becoming a pastor, although member's of his Dad's churches would call him "Little Preacher Man" on Sunday mornings. When he was about seven years old, Grant remembers calling out to God for salvation. It was not until January 21, 1993, that God called him to pursue ministry. Little did Grant know the journey he was about to embark on! Isaiah 55:8 & 9 became life verses because truly God's thoughts and ways are so much greater than our own.
While living in Phoenix, AZ, Grant met Gina at church. A friendship was started for about a year. When the time was right, he pursued more than a friendship. The two were married in March 1997. Grant and Gina serve a team raising five kids and serving God in the ministry.
James 1:5-8 (ESV)
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
